Honor and loyalty

There’s an old fashioned part of me that misses TV shows and movies where the hero is someone who does the right thing because it’s the right thing to do, values honor and loyalty without irony, and where stories show us people being decent to each other in spite of all that’s going wrong around them.

Maybe that’s what I found so appealing about Downton Abbey, despite the fact that it became more of a soap opera as it moved along.
